Digital distraction has bothered generations of people. It gets even worse for gen Z and gen alpha. More and more people feel it hard to fall asleep quickly. And one of the biggest culprits is the mobile phone.

I want to find an activity that makes people feel somehow sleepy but far more meaningful than just spending time on digital platforms. Reading a book is perfect in this situation.

The I-BOOK lamp is crafted to encourage the habit of bedtime reading.

It activates when a book is picked up, automatically turning off when the book is placed back. The timer initiates upon book pickup, gradually dimming the light to foster a calming environment conducive to sleep.


How it works..

Focus 1: Prototyping

The process has a huge focus on prototyping ranging from low fidelity - for proportion & basic interaction - to high fidelity for detailed interaction, increased durability & DFA simplification

Focus 2: CAD Iteration

I wanted the lamp functions duo purposes as a bedside reading lamp or a task lamp for home studio. Lots of CAD iteration were done to achieve the final result.

Focus 3: Fabrication

I worked with a local fabricator in LA to make the lamp. During the process,

I learned a lot about metal fabrication & how to deal with manufacturing constraints.
